Toshiba Qosmio F755 due in US August 16

Toshiba on Tuesday prepped the launch of its glasses-free 3D Qosmio notebook for the US. Americanized as the F755, the 15.6-inch notebook should reach the US on August 16. Pricing starts high at $1,699 but outfits it with a quad 2GHz Core i7, 6GB of RAM, a 750GB hard drive, and a GeForce GT 540M for the crucial video component.

The system revolves around a parallax system similar to the Nintendo 3DS but which adds a rare tracking system to compensate for the larger screen. By using the webcam, it an track the owner's head and adjust the image to make sure the 3D effect remains at most viewing angles. Like most 3D screens, the alternating line effect requires dropping the resolution from the native 1080p to get the extra dimension.

As a desktop replacement, F755 fits a numeric keypad as well as a more powerful Harman Kardon speaker system. It can output its 3D to a TV through HDMI and will often come outfitted with a Blu-ray drive to make sure it can play 3D offline.
